Mitch McConnell says he wants a Kavanaugh vote “this week.” Since the Flake agreement was for an FBI investigation lasting no more than one week (from last Friday) and the “this week” ends this Friday, this seems to require a vote almost literally as soon as the report is released. Tierney Sneed walks us through the procedural nuts and bolts (Prime access) of what’s involved here and how it’s likely to work. (Hint: McConnell is hoping the investigation is done tomorrow.)
